Honors Evolution (S318).--This is a four-credit, honors course in evolutionary biology. Topics include quantitative genetics, population genetics, life-history theory, evolution of sexual reproduction, sexual selection, mutation-selection balance, genetic load, evolution of social behavior, correlated responses to selection, speciation, macroevolution, molecular evolution, and phylogenetic reconstruction.
This course is an
integrated lecture/lab course that meets three times per
week. It is also an intensive writing course. Students
get individualized attention and direct feedback from the
instructors on technical writing in biology. (Intensive
writing courses at IU are restricted to 25 students.)
I will teach the course again in the Fall
semester of 2016.
